This may be a bit off topic, but I can not help but think of Robert Moses solving all of our transportation in the 1950's and 60's in NY, by building more highways. The more that were built, the worse the traffic got. Yet, for decades people have been putting up with it.
He also solved the transportation issue by only spending money on transportation by automobile. This has come to haunt us now as the automobile is too expensive, and the other alternatives don't exist in enough capacity. We need to be more careful about developing a single internet and coming to rely on it now because of it's *inexpensive* nature. Dare I say, leave the Internet be and come up with another solution to this data exchange issue, in the end redundancy is not in two internet connections, but two modes of connecting. I would prefer grandma have a faster connection, she has less time to spare. Let all the power users jump on the new technology as they are willing to adapt more easily.
